Take a moment to appreciate the simple beauty of these butterflies!

Fall is here which means butterflies have begun to migrate south; however, we can never get enough of these fragile, winged beauties in our lives.

Check out these beautiful amateur and professional photos of butterflies in their natural element.

We could marvel at their patterns for hours.

Still warm enough outside for 🦋s! #autumn #fall #butterfly #austin #atx #lgg6

Their symmetry is impeccable.

We’re always impressed with their tranquility.

Their long migration route never ceases to amaze us.

. —– I’ve watched you now a full half-hour; Self-poised upon that yellow flower And, little Butterfly! indeed I know not if you sleep or feed. How motionless!–not frozen seas More motionless! and then What joy awaits you, when the breeze Hath found you out among the trees, And calls you forth again! —– William Wordsmith —– #butterfly #monarchbutterfly #monarchbutterflymigration #offtomexico #mexicobound #monarchlanding #monarchbutterflymigrationtomexico #natgeoyourshot #natgeocreative #natgeo #naturephotography #majestic_wildlife_ #newjersey #jersey #splendid_vibe #wanderlust #jersey #depthobsessed #earthpix #shotzdelight #earth_shotz #ig_beautiful #ig_newjersey #jerseyshore #njisbeautiful #longbeachislandnewjersey #longbeachisland #holgatebeachnewjersey #holgate #holgatebeachnj #just_newjersey

We’re awestruck by their bright and varied colors.

Sometimes, though, they are black as the night.

And other times, they’re see-through.

Every once in awhile, you’re lucky enough to find more than one.

They come in so many shapes and sizes.

Thank you butterfly for being still for me for a few seconds 😊😍 #villasophia #butterfly #colorful #black&red

We often forget that they’re insects, and that insects can be beautiful.
